The Answers are in the Mysteries: Scopes for the week of Monday, March 25 to Monday, April 1, 2013.

If you know your astrology and are aware of your Sun Sign, your Moon Sign and your Rising Sign, also called the Ascendant, please read the Scopes for the Signs of all three; The Moon being especially important for those born in the evening or at night, likewise the Sun for those of you born at dawn or during the day.


March 21-23 to April 20-23

The spotlight is on you big guy, or gal, and I aint talkin' 'bout your figure. I'm clearly referring only to your large ramming horns, gender-orientating them as male. I'm a Hermeticist, what do you expect? You're apt to have a a week that demonstrates the totality of your being. Get ready to observe your Selfhood in overdrive. Times like these are what being an Aries is all about. Simply witness you even research the sign itself and integrate. Take notes! It's a powerful time for those born under this sign, but watch for digging too deeply into the dirt as Pluto has a hard aspect to Venus, making places of inner depth most difficult to penetrate or define.

April 21-23 to May 20-23

You don't get along with all of the celestial Aries weather terribly, and though you are slightly adverse in modality, and element, there is still a mammalian relationship in imagery. Still, those these beasts do not 'hang', they know the same greener pastures. We must be careful, though inspired by the show that the rams put on, not to rip up the territory on which we roam, also being prone to charging, as it is also the grass from which we graze. Understand that Hermes is very busy right now, having gone swimming. There's a beneficial aspect to the planet of creativity in a chaotic and abstract sense.

May 21-23 to June 20-23

Gemini, Gemini, Gemini, Gemini, Gemini... What to do with all of you? As I just informed the Tauren lot, communication is a consideration at the moment and not necessarily as smooth and invigorating as we may always hope for it to be. This reason being, your ruling planet is in Pisces at the moment. Pisces is where we meet or explore with our demons and also where we can potentially become their guru. With a powerful alignment to Scorpio at the moment, you can transcend being 'all wet' if you tap into this little thing we might call "unwavering compassion."

June 21-23 to July 20-23

Your week will focus earliest, on relationships with those close to you, followed by a brief intense period of a day or two, with heightened feelings, and sensitivities to power shifts, followed still by a rather comfortable start to the week ahead. The full Moon is in Virgo on Wednesday (Mercury Day), contrasting all of the Aries influences in the air at the moment. This will be a time for solitude, within your shell, especially if you have questions of weather or not to stay, or go. Just sit tight and enjoy the comforts of home.

July 21-23 to Aug. 20-23

This week sees the Sun in a place of heightened focus on the self, definitely not other people in your picture, with the exception of those you share intimacy with. However, you have several warnings coming to you, one being to watch, ever still, for your tendency toward selfishness in your decisions concerning those you care for. The second has to do with the inherent karma facing you, of which an inconjuct aspect has you entirely incapable of fully comprehending. Saturn resides in Scorpio right now, having gone retrograde for quite some time, meaning when it goes direct again (out of its retrograde), the past may find a strange way of catching up.

Aug. 21-24 to Sept. 21-23

The Moon rolls into your sign this week after she's full. She will be clear in the sky, and like the Sun when you were born, she's swayed by the celestial influence of the Medicine God, come Thursday. Virgo has an uncanny ability to deal precisely with numbers, figures, facts and even fictions. Their minds can deduce small changes that radically effect the whole, by shearing, pruning and trimming up ideas. With so much in Aries right now,  now may be a time for introversion, as opposed to extroversion. These skills are not always well received by others.

Sept. 21-23 to Oct. 21 - 23

If you have found any creative abilities latent as far as finding the inspiration to spark the fires necessary to motivate yourself, now would be the time to sincerely tap in. It's a general season for self-reflection, and setting into motion that which is to be, for the future. Use this time wisely. The full Moon, which occurs on Wednesday (Mercury Day) the 27th , is in your sign, and that adds some punch to your personal reservoir of comprehension through heightened intuition. The star weather right now could also spell a serious bout of self-concerned indecision. Be aware of your tendency towards this, sit down and make some art, in whatever form you can muster, though it will be likely that words will come into play, even if they compose a picture.

Oct. 21-23 to Nov. 21-23

Mars has some challenging aspects considering your sign, such as a square to Pluto, your other ruler and it's also inconjunct with a retrograde Saturn, also in Scorpio. What does all of this mean? Well, you’re kind of up shit creek, in terms of a wonderful sense of well-being; However, looking for the deeper meanings in things is not what this week is making easy for you, nor is this a week about expanding your enterprises. This will be a week for staying low before springing up and out again. In the meantime, keep to yourself and everything will be juuust fine.

Nov. 20-23 to Dec. 20-23

You'll be coming into a rightly comfortable state of being come Monday of next week, and the days in between have you all fired up, ready to start new ventures, if willing to give it a go. You cannot help but feel the need to instigate something, in some way, though conversations about the realities of your sometimes outlandish ideas will result in emotional discussions that are frankly, a little alien to you. Tap into those depths, and see what wonderful things await you on the bottom of the emotional ocean floors. It's not as scary as you think it might be.

Dec. 20-23 to Jan. 18-21

You'll be feeling slightly oppressed this week, with much weight on your shoulders and perhaps a wee bit of depression hanging about. There is an underlying anger present that has been irritated during last week's strongly sentimental, highly emotionally charged escapades. And you won't have none o' that. It's simply time to dig in those heels and smash your head up against your issues until they break. Sometimes there's nothing left to do but repeatedly challenge them until something finally gives. Good luck.

Jan. 18-21 to Feb. 18-21

Aquarians are presently looking at intense times, immersed in an atmosphere they generally find much too spicy for their preferred life-style taste buds. You're being challenged to uproot deep things that stubbornly won't come up and to make things grow when the time is simply not right for them to be shoot stalks. Everything pushes up against you in some small way so you turn inward, like many of the rest of us. There's no harm in this, though even choosing to face issues directly, sheer persistence will be your best friend at the end of the day.

Feb. 18- 21 to March 18-21

A lot of elements have shifted from your sign, to another, though some are still reminiscent of the heavy Piscine placements of the last two weeks, you have come from a time, fully immersed in the seas of your own depth, to emerge onto the surface level of things, again. What have you learned about the nature of the sign of the fish? Mercury is still in your sign, and writing is highly suggestible, in terms of gaining a more profound internal understanding, though expanding on these insights may be difficult. Annotating them is not enough, for one must actually process what is learned, not merely spell it out in words, on a page, virtual or otherwise.
